WHY FOUR WINDS?
* Due to Covid 19 we are not currently offering breakfasts.
BLUEBERRY OVEN PANCAKE
1/2 C flour
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
2-4 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 C frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 400 Deg F. Measure the butter into a large glass pie plate or other oven proof dish and place in the oven to melt butter while mixing the other ingredients. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk until beaten. Continue beating and add the milk, flour, sugar, salt and vanilla.
Remove the hot dish with melted butter from the oven, pour in the egg mixture and sprinkle the blueberries on top. Put back in the oven and bake 25 to 35 minutes, until the center puffs up. Cut into four and serve immediately. I serve with maple syrup.
What could be special about blueberry muffins? Well, this is probably my most requested recipe. Between the guests and the family these muffins disappear quickly.
2 cups flour
½ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
3 tbsp baking powder
Rind of one lemon
1 cup liquid (usually milk, but equally good with 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt, 1/3 cup half&half cream, and 1/3 cup milk)
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon rind in a large bowl. Whisk egg in a medium bowl, add milk and melted butter. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed. Stir in blueberries. Fill muffin tins, makes 12 muffins and bake for 20 minutes.
OVERNIGHT CARAMEL FRENCH TOAST
½ Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbs Light Corn Syrup
5 Large eggs
1 ½ Cup Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
¼ tsp salt.
Thickly slice a loaf of day old French bread, I cut the slices about 1 ¼ inches thick. Trim off crusts and fit into a 9 X 13 inch pan. Remove bread.
Combine butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup. Heat over double boiler until sugar is melted, stirring constantly. (You can do this in the microwave, heat on high for 2 – 3 minutes, stirring after each minute.)
Pour butter/sugar sauce into the 9 X 13 inch pan and spread evenly over pan. Replace bread on top of the sauce.
In a large bowl, beat eggs lightly. Add milk, vanilla and salt. Mix thoroughly with whisk. Pour egg mixture over the bread in the 9 X 13 inch pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the refrigerator over night.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes, or until golden and the center starts to puff up.
I serve with cold applesauce.
